National M&E specialist Linaker has announced its expansion in the hospitality sector with the signing of a significant contract for renowned​ fast-food chain KFC. 

Linaker will provide full building services across KFC’s 53 sites as they continue to roll out their nationwide self-delivery model. The circa. £4m contract will see Linaker providing a dedicated flock of engineers across mechanical electrical and AC alongside managing the wider sub partners to ensure the KFC experience remains iconic, whether you’re after a bucket or a box; a twister or a salad.

KFC and Linaker are culturally aligned with their shared passion and focus on people, from the Colonel to the teams on the fryers; from the Helpdesk to the team on the tools, alongside other important values and missions, including Linaker’s introduction of ‘zero-emissions-inuse’ vans and KFC’s goal to be a zero waste business by 2035.

“The model that Linaker is offering will provide us with unrivalled value for money, alongside great responsiveness and flexibility. We’re looking forward to building our partnership over the next three years to ensure what you get in the bucket is reflected behind the bucket.”
